"We were very excited to receive a Big Ten offer." The Cobb's were very impressed with the Wildcats scrimmage and the job that former Pittsburgh Steelers assistant Mike Archer has done recruiting Ashton Cobb. "Coach [Mike] Archer is very straight forward, and we liked that," Wayne Cobb said. "The scrimmage was very competitive; we're excited about the opportunity at Kentucky for defensive backs." "Coach [Brian] George has done a very good job recruiting Ashton for Indiana. He is right up front, and a very gracious man. They also present a lot of opportunity at Indiana for defensive backs.

"We're just trying to sort through everything and get the information we want," Wayne Cobb said. "We have to see if schools meet our academic standards, what their values are, he's just doing his homework and we'll see how it all unfolds." Cobb will be among many top young athletes who will compete at the Scout.com combine at the University of Akron, on May 28th.
